Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  2. We believe that there is One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.
  4. We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose presence and power are necessary for believers to live a godly life and for the building of the Body of Christ.
  6. We believe in the power of prayer, both individual and corporate.
  7. We believe in the sanctity of human life beginning at conception and that each child is a gift from God, entrusted to his or her parents to be the primary educators and authority, training them in accordance with God’s will and Word.
  8. We believe that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen 2:18- 25)
  9. We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary sexes together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen 1:26-27.) Rejection of one’s biological sex is a denial of who God created you to be. (revised last sentence of #9. on 07/31/18)
  10. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers through our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that individual doctrinal differences which may exist outside the aforementioned, should not hinder the unity of Christian home educators.
